obama defied the polls and predictions in an election that was expected to be one of the closest in history, even with florida tonight still up in the air. the president won more than 300 a tour of votes to secure another four years in the oval office. many republicans are left in shock at the results asking how with 23 million people unemployed almost 8 percent unemployment, record national debt in excess of $16 trillion, scandals and controversies from operation fast and furious, the benghazi cover-up, how could president obama possibly win reelection so impressively? a popular vote margin of more than 2 million votes, but an electoral vote margin of almost 100. an examination of the fox news exit polling data shows the obama campaign won big with key constituencies, and a strong showing by the democratic base responsible for putting the president over the top. president obama drawing on the latino community. xbox projecting 71% of hispanics voted for the president. that number up from 67% in 2008 and, of course, the historic level. the president's support among black voters ac
